- Company completed the spinoff of fintech & mobile solutions offering, GoLogiq, as an independent, publicly traded company
- Logiq reports solid execution pursuing higher margin businesses with larger customer accounts on a consolidated and segment basis
- Company focus is on direct-to-customer portal, which was launched in mid-April and is expected to produce significantly higher margins and revenues
NEW YORK, Aug. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Logiq, Inc. (OTCQX: LGIQ; NEO: LGIQ), a provider of digital consumer acquisition solutions, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2022 ended June 30, 2022, and its outlook for full-year 2022. Results consolidate GoLogiq, Inc. (OTC: GOLQ) financials, which was a Logiq majority-owned business segment until completion of the spinoff on July 27, 2022. Going forward, GoLogiq’s financials will no longer be consolidated with the Logiq’s.
- Consolidated revenues in the quarter were $4.9 million, compared with $8.3 million in the prior year quarter.
- Consolidated gross margins increased 730 basis points to 36.8%, over the year-ago quarter.
- GoLogiq (formerly AppLogiq) gross margins increased 1,480 basis points, to 46.5%, year over year. This increase in margin was a result of implementing a strategic shift to targeting high-margin end-customers compared to low-margin high-volume white label resellers, that began in 2020.
- Logiq (formerly DataLogiq) gross margins increased 350 basis points to 31.9%, over the same quarter last year.
- Consolidated net loss was $6.5 million, compared with a net loss of $5.0 million in the year-ago quarter.
Operating Highlights On July 27, the Company announced that it had completed the distribution of GoLogiq (formerly known as Lovarra) spin-off shares to Logiq shareholders of record as of the close of business on December 30, 2021, which marked the full separation of Logiq and GoLogiq into two independent, publicly traded companies.
Management Commentary Logiq Chief Executive Officer, Brent Suen, commented, “We are pleased with the successful spin-off of our GoLogiq business, through which we transformed our business into two standalone companies. We are confident that going forward this transaction will unlock both companies’ fullest value and create enhanced returns for our shareholders.
“As we noted in our first quarter report, our quarterly revenue remains inconsistent, as was reflected in the second quarter. However, our commitment to executing on our strategy to pursue a higher margin business was reflected in our robust gross margin results.” Mr. Suen added, “Importantly, Logiq is in a transition period in which we are shifting our resources to securing larger corporate customers, in part to capitalize on our Battle Bridge acquisition earlier this year, whose consolidation has synergistically produced a company with a broader range of services and greater depth of expertise – which we believe will enable us to bid on and win far bigger customer accounts. While those sales cycles are longer, I strongly believe that this strategy is gaining solid traction and we fully expect to report strong progress in the months ahead.”
Q2 2022 Financial Highlights Consolidated revenues in the quarter were $4.9 million, down 40.4% compared to $8.3 million in the prior year period. The Company’s (GoLogiq) CreateApp platform contributed $1.6 million or 32.6% of second quarter consolidated revenue, down 42.6% from $2.8 million in the year-ago quarter. The revenue decrease resulted from a strategic shift to pursue a higher gross margin business, which resulted in attrition of lower margin business and an increase of direct sales/marketing expenses. Logiq’s DataLogiq platform revenues contributed $3.3 million or 67.4% of second quarter consolidated revenue, down 39.3% from $5.5 million in the year ago quarter. The decrease in revenues was primarily due to Medicare enrollment and a newly implemented focus on a direct-to-customer (D2C) portal. The D2C portal reduces the Company’s dependence on third-party aggregators and enables it to go directly to end-consumers via consumer facing portals, such as an Angie’s List or Porch.com, generating considerably higher gross profit margins that can, when scaled, track upwards to 50-60%.
Consolidated gross profit decreased 25.7% to $1.8 million on a 36.8% gross margin in Q2 2022 compared with $2.4 million, or 29.5%, respectively in the prior year quarter.
Total operating expenses increased 5.7% to $8.3 million in Q2 2022 from $7.8 million in the year-ago quarter, primarily due to an increase in general and administrative and sales and marketing expense.
The Q2 2022 net loss was $6.5 million, up from a net loss of $5.0 million in the year-ago quarter. As of June 30, 2022, the Company’s cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash totaled $0.4 million vs. $1.6 million on December 31, 2021.
Reiterating 2022 Guidance The Company reiterates its annualized revenue projections for fiscal 2022 to end the year in the range of a $40 million to $50 million run rate, reaching a breakeven EBITDA run rate by the end of 2022 and attaining profitability in early 2023. This forecast is based on the Company’s potential deal pipeline, which originally included M&A and potential partnerships and client relationships. The Company is not currently calculating any further M&A for the year, although management is still comfortable with the aforementioned range of revenues. However, no assurances can be provided that Logiq will enter into any strategic transactions with companies in the pipeline, or that the results of any such transactions will allow the Company to reach this goal.
